It’s a bit late, perhaps. But, since we endured both the remnants of hurricanes Irene and Lee in recent weeks, you may want to sample some great fiction and nonfiction devoted to stormy weather. During Irene, The Daily Beast published its list of the best "hurricane lit." Here are some you can curl up with during the next bout of bad weather.
Sudden Sea: The Great Hurricane of 1938 by R.A. Scotti
The Perfect Storm by Sebastian Junger
Typhoon by Joseph Conrad
A High Wind in Jamaica by Richard Hughes
Isaac’s Storm by Erik Larson
